less than what john mccain received in 2008. so why was it that the republican base which seemed energized before the election, didn't come out and support him the way they did john mccain, for example? >> well, here's part of that story i think. the republican base was energized. romney received more than 57 million votes. that is a heck of a lot of people. they were committed and i was talking to all of them and they were really, towards the end, maybe last 10 days kind of on fire. however, that base itself is getting smaller. you know it is a smaller slice of the pie than it used to be. and i think one of the big lessons of this campaign is that republican political operatives have been for a quarter century tri saying exciting the base, getting the base to the polls. it is about more than that now. from here on every election is trying to expand the base, meaning trying to per said. trying to talk to getting with people, look, this is our plan. this is it why we think it is best. i think the way the republican party itself does business is probably going to be changed by this

for barack obama in this election than the last election, and mitt romney did not beat john mccain's totals in this election. both of those numbers are absolutely extraordinary. it says a lot about the romney campaign and its inability to excite its own base and get people out to vote for its own side. i don't disagree -- >> wasn't anger enough? >> it certainly -- i think it was disgust with both sides. i think there were a large portion of voters who decided they weren't going to vote for obama and they didn't feel comfortable with romney for a variety of reasons. i agree with the basic premise that going forward in the future we need to be more culturally diverse as a party. we need to go after different segments of the population because obviously the country is changing, and we all get that. in this particular election, there was another story being told. barack obama was there for the taking. we could have beat him. we just had to have john mccain numbers, and we didn't have it. >> who was your candidate that would have done better than romney? >> jeb bush. >> jeb bush. interesting. yo
